  • Precision Link Indexing Conveyor Platform
  • Five-minute changeover between product families
  • Common Assembly Mechanism for nine (9) assembly stations
  • Bowlfeeders and linear feeders for automatic feeding of component parts
  • A single PLC using DeviceNet as the device-level I/O buss for valve stacks and sensors
  • Gantry-mounted touchscreen HMI
